Max Grant’s Dawn of Betrayal is published and available at Amazon.com.
It’s 1947 in America. Enemies foreign and domestic working under explicit orders in service to the Soviet Union have initiated the long march through our institutions. In these times free Americans have not yet succumbed to the fallacies and deceits of Political Correctness. Engrained with common sense and rational thought, they could never foresee that so many would someday yield to such blatant manipulation after only a few decades of indoctrination and conditioning.
Yet one among them does.
To date the USSR has experienced unmatched success in placing a highly sophisticated fifth column of traitors and spies during the years running up to and including the Second World War. The U.S. State Department in particular was thoroughly penetrated. Innumerable of Lenin’s “useful idiots” are again being roped in by a myriad of innocently-named front organizations posing as popular crusades of progress and enlightenment. But the veil is coming off and the institutional protections are slipping away as Stalin’s deep-cover moles scurry to keep hidden from the light of day.
Newly returned from the Pacific War and Japanese occupation, private detective Raymond James hangs out his shingle in Hollywood, hires on Miss Yuki Suzuki, ex-internee of Manzanar, and works his way onto the studio lots. Neither expects that an unusual assignment will plunge them deep into the heart of darkness of the American Communist conspiracy. What starts as a simple case of mistaken identity grows into a cross-country odyssey of treason, murder, duty, honor, and courage before just one enemy plot is discovered and run to ground.
Join Ray as his adventures take him from the docks of Los Angeles Harbor through the studios of Hollywood and the defense industries of New Mexico to a nest of vipers hidden deep in the high society of Tampa-St. Petersburg. Obtain glimpses of the moral dangers inherent in an alien, inhuman system that brooks no dissent and relentlessly enforces its tenets by any means necessary. Share the vision of Ray’s partner Yuki who understands better than any what the future holds.
